#WeeklyGameMusic: Liberation (La Muerte de Papo) (Papo & Yo)

#WeeklyGameMusic: New week, new music. This week’s music comes from a touching and tragic game called Papo & Yo.  Despite it’s fantastical (or more correctly, magical realism) settings, the puzzle platformer touches what it’s like to live under parental abuse.  It’s quite fitting, then, that the credits music for this game, Liberation (La Muerte de Papo) by Brian D’Oliveira, […]

#WeeklyGameMusic: Tank 1 (Insaniquarium)

#WeeklyGameMusic: Fungi Forest (Donkey Kong 64)

#WeeklyGameMusic: New week, new music. Do you hear that?  Yup, I’m late again.  Anyway, this week’s music is a nice and pleasant composition from Donkey Kong 64, written by the infamous Grant Kirkhope.  While Grant is more known for his jaunty, bouncy compositions, Fungi Forest is a tame music more focused on silence.  A soothing music […]

#WeeklyGameMusic: New week, new music. iBlast Moki 2 by Romain Gauthier Good ol’ Romain “Ninomojo” Gauthier has yet another beautiful mobile game music, this time for an adorable puzzle game called iBlast Moki 2. As the score’s title implies, Forest depicts a tone fitting of…well, actually, anything that’s happy. Anyway, brew that hot cocoa of […]
